    My wife and I recently visited the Bolnuevo geological erosions for the very first time. We walked along the coastal road from Puerto de Mazarron, and finally looked upon the Gredas de Bolnuevo in the early afternoon of what proved to be a very hot day. The geological phenomenon is certainly a very interesting one, easily accessible by car. There was quite a vast car park at the front, which was virtually empty at the time of our visit. The attraction seems to be quite an understated one. - As far as we could see, there was no English translation of the site noticeboard, by the car park, (though we might have missed it!) and no obviously accessible or signposted route to move around, or in amongst, the rocks. Nevertheless, the site is visually impressive, and well worth a visit. It's free to look at, and very near the Bolnuevo front, beach, sea and the Oasis restaurant. It's probably not somewhere where you could spend a vast amount of time (particularly with children) but it's still a must-see visit for anyone in the area for a time. In sum, it's an impressive natural phenomenon, which the local authorities could do far more to emphasise.

    On the last day of our holiday staying with friends in Los Alcazares it was a boiling hot day (mid 30s), so we decided to have a beach day. Our friends suggested Mazarron as we had never been before. It was a pleasant drive down the coast and we settled at Playa de la Reya. This was a lovely bay located near to the hotel Bahia. The sand was golden and there was plenty of room for our deckchairs and umbrellas.

    This was a popular bay and quickly became busy, especially along the shoreline. It was nice to see families spending time together and children playing with beach toys including kite's. We spent the entire day at the beach sunbathing and paddling in the gentle waves under the watchful eye of the lifeguard. The views across the ocean were amazing with several boat trips leaving the nearby harbor. At lunch time we enjoyed a picnic and visited the beach bar for cold drinks. The beach bar was very clean with plenty of seating . There was a great menu selling salads, burgers and snacks. After lunch we took a stroll over the bridge to the rocks in the sea.

    My wife and I have walked along Playa de Bahia on many occasions during the past year, en route from Puerto de Mazarron to Bolnuevo. On this occasion, however, we also took the wooden stairway which leads up from the beach towards the top of a large outcrop of rocks that juts out into the sea. The walkway has seen better days - at the top were four benches which had graffiti on them, and the area around the benches was in need of some tidying up. Nevertheless, the view from this promontory at the top of the rocks was lovely, showing Bahia and the Playa Hermita (to the left) and Bolnuevo (to the right) to their very best advantage. Playa de Bahia is far more open - less enclosed - than the Puerto de Mazarron beaches, and there is far more to see. It's a better location for surfing, and the flat beaches and golden sands just seem to stretch on forever towards the Bolnuevo horizon (and beyond)!

    A free little distraction for our grandchildren. Easy to walk up and exciting for 5 years old and over to climb up these wooden stair/steps on a day out to the lovely beaches of this area.

    Nice big car park. It is one of the bigger beaches in Mazarron. Lots of places to eat nearby and the snorkelling here is good. A good variety of fish to see. One of the best spots for snorkelling is around the big rock that is a short swim from the shore. The water gets deep at the back of the rock. We also went snorkelling further up the beach at the base of the cliff where it is quite rocky. Water not so calm there and totally different fish. There is also a fair ground nearby in the summer and pedalo boats for hire on the beach. There were quite a few people hiring the boats to pedal to the island to go snorkelling over there. As it was the end of the season the toilets were rather grotty and smelly.

    This place is not obvious and has a very unprepossessing interior. I went in when I first moved here and I wasn't sure what I was looking at! I had to come home and google. Mainly because there was very little information on the exhibits (This was 3 years ago so it may have improved) What there was, was in Spanish
    However, I found it a very worthwhile visit. It is almost 'cosy' if that is the right word, and the layout is wonderful for people with mobility issues/wheelchairs Full marks for that!

    Although this is one of many beaches in puerto Mazarron, it only gets really busy in July & August. We found parking easy-ish close by. A couple of beach bars & cafes too.
    The best is the calm & clear waters.

    I was staying at the Playa Grande hotel which is right on this stretch of beach.
    Dinner on their terrace on Saturday
    night was wonderful. - sound of the sea
    and crashing waves ! There is a lovely pedestrianised promenade to walk along and a large expanse of beach with a great chiringuito- theor pulpo with a glass of toasted almonds was just wonderful with a glass of verdejo for lunch. The sea was lovely and warm albeit unseasonably rough on the day. Water so clear. Beach was spotlessly clean. Lots of coastal resodential properties bordering the beach. Great food on the hotel terrace for lunch or dinner. Their roasted baby shouder of goat was amazing !
    Lovely stretch of beach.

    A larger and livelier beach than the one next door = Nares. Wider so waves are shallower as they come in and not as protected as Nares

    There are two beaches here with rocky out crops. Great for snorkeling. The water is shallow with golden sands. Plenty of bars close by as well as a beach bar where you can hire sunbeds. The little church has history and worth a visit.

    Large expanse of beach that is unspoiled. Quieter than other beaches in immediate area. Long walk alone the shoreline. Peace and tranquility.

    My wife and I visited the Corazon de Jesus yesterday, during a visit to the port. We walked up from the port, and it's quite a steep climb, and (towards the end) not particularly well signposted. We'd seen the 'sacred heart of Jesus' from all points of Puerto de Mazarron, and its immediate neighbourhoods, but this was the first time we'd actually scaled the heights and seen the Christ statue at close quarters. The actual approach to the statue from the town end is an unprepossessing one, along what is presumably an unadopted, potholed road. However, once at the statue - constructed in 1948 - the views are magnificent. All of Puerto de Mazarron is visible, along with Bolnuevo to the south, and the villages and countryside to the north. There is a small enclosure attached to one side of the statue, where the Catholic faithful keep lit votive candles, and a narrow trackway which leads on to a coastal clifftop with lovely views of the endless blue Mediterranean. The statue is well worth a visit for its views alone. It's religious significance makes it even more interesting, as hundreds of the same images have been constructed across the Catholic world since the time of Pope Leo in the late nineteenth century.

    A hidden gem of history! I live in Mazarrón and visit the port almost daily, but had no idea these Roman ruins where here! If you like ancient cultures, as I do, this is a must. A scrap of land surrounded by apartments, yields a section of Roman housing in great detail
